Asus has launched three variants of the ZenFone 2 lineup in India (four including storage variants). These are moderately priced from Rs. 12,999 to Rs. 22,999 and is expected to even come at a lower price in the future, which is a plus when compared to its solid feature set. Asus, just like the first-generation ZenFone series, has made all the ZenFone 2 series models available for pre-order on Flipkart.

Another plus is the ZenFone 2’s simple design, with an attractive finish and ergonomic arc design. This design also keeps the sides clear of buttons, which enhances its aesthetics as well avoids any accidental button usage. They have moved the volume and shutter button to the back to reduce the thickness of the ZenFone 2 to a mere 3.9mm, which is in itself an engineering marvel. And all this with a 5.5-inch display, which makes the phone look sleek and attractive, as compared to what you pay for it.
All the four Zenfone 2 variants support 4G LTE and run Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box with the company's ZenUI on top. Zenfone 2 ZE 551 ML comes with 1080p resolution display while the Zenfone 2 ZE 550 ML comes with 720p display.
Now, those of you who get frequent panic attacks when your smart phone takes 3 hours to charge completely, I am sure you will jump on your couch when you read this - Asus Zenfone 2 comes with a ‘BoostMaster Fast-Charging Technology’, meaning 60% of the battery gets charged in 39 minutes!!
I especially hate it when a smart phone slows down with multiple apps running at a time and becomes a dumb phone. To beat this Asus Zenphone 2 provides the largest capacity of 4GB RAM. This standout feature provides incredible multitasking and runs smoothly even with several apps running in the backend system. Well, try running 10-15 apps on it and you will know what I am talking about.
